Short Review: Taken 2

Grade: C

Bryan Mills and his family are taken... Again.

Not nearly as fun or entertaining as the first. Not bad and still enjoyable though. Too long of a set up. My favorite scene involves Mills' daughter randomly throwing grenades in the middle if Istanbul with no regard for what crowded area they might be going to.
